Native American Dance
Adaptive & Multidimensional Contexts: an Exploration of Motion Capture Technology and Native American Dance Documentation:
New Motion Capture technology provides rich possibilities to explore, digitally archive and critically examine the relatively undocumented and therefore invisible traditions and adaptations of Native American dance. In response, investigators have fostered a residency think-tank experience including dancers, students and audiences to explore and address these issues and produce a best practices model for the use of Motion Capture as an archival and analysis resource for ethnic dance preservation and cultural inquiry.
Completed from 2003-2004.
